Morewood Mystery ++ Cutting Instructions

Is everyone ready to start cutting their fabrics?



Normally, instructions are posted on the first Thursday of each month.  Due to vacation plans, I am posting this month's a few days early.  This change in posting schedule will only affect August, all of the other months will remain the same.

There is plenty of time to join in on the quilt along, we are just getting started!  You can find all of the information about the Morewood Mystery, including schedule, past instructions, links to the Facebook group, sneak peek, and more at the Morewood Mystery Page.
